Poetic Words Inspire ArtDC Show

Nine artists to present work inspired by T.S. Eliot poem at ArtDC Gallery in the Lustine Center.

Poetic Words Inspire ArtDC Show

Asked to consider the third stanza of T.S. Eliot's Raphsody on a Windy Night, a group of nine mid-Atlantic artists will be premiering sculptures, photography and mixed media arts at the ArtDC Gallery in the Lustine Center on Route 1 in downtown Hyattsville.

It's all part of the Retold exhibit, which aims to transform Eliot's evocative words into a visual language. There is an historic precedent to this exhibit. The very same stanza was also used as the basis for a 1961 exhibition, The Art of Assemblage, at the Museum of Modern Art. That exhibit featured the works of 140 top contemporary artists ( Picasso, Man Ray, among others) who incorporated found objects into their work. 

The show features the works of photographers C. Mason, Michael Mendez, Carlos Fyfe, Jenny Wallace, Jesse Cohen, scultpurists Brian Slagle, Steven Dobbin, and mixed media artists

Kristin Bohlander and Jeff Bohlander.

The show runs from Jan. 28 through Feb 25, with an opening reception on Jan. 28 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
